Congratulations mama. You did it! Welcome to the fourth trimester.
Postpartum chiropractic care is here to support you through this new journey. Your body has gone through so much during your pregnancy, delivery and now you are holding and taking care of your new baby. Between all the changing hormones, lack of sleep, taking care of a new member of your family, it’s a transformation that requires some adjustments. Your body might not feel the same. Give yourself some TIME. Time to rest, embrace and enjoy this phase of your life.
Postpartum chiropractic care can be helpful at this time. Check out below what it can do for you.
What Kind of Conditions Can a Postpartum Chiropractor Help With?
Each mom’s delivery method is different and impacts their postpartum needs. For those with c-sections, this is considered to be major abdominal surgery. This may require follow up care spanning several months as your body heals and adjusts to its new form.
Our postpartum providers at Custom Chiropractor go through a detailed history about your pregnancy and delivery. They will address any new symptoms you are experiencing during your postpartum journey.
Some women have a goal to be pain free, and be able to lift, carry and play with their baby. Some other women would like to return to their favorite activities such as yoga, pilates, crossfit. Our doctors enjoy the benefits of these activities as well, and have partnered with studios and gyms around the Bay Area to make your transition as smooth as possible. Some other conditions that postpartum chiropractic care could help with:
- Neck, mid back and low back pain
- Shoulder, wrist, and hip pain stemming from breastfeeding
- Rebuilding core and pelvic floor strength
- Help with Diastasis Recti (abdominal separation)
- Guide you for a safe return to physical activity
